Following exceptional circumstances concerning the escalating risks associated with the Covid 19 pandemic, it is with deep regret following much discussion that the ASME Board have decided to cancel the TASME Spring Conference to be held on 28th March 2020 at the University of Leeds
This is in accordance with reducing the risks associated with large gatherings, minimising travel and ensuring healthcare professionals are available to care for patients.
We are sorry to have to make this decision and hope you will understand our reasoning. Thank you for your understanding.

Building Diversity in Medical Education
The TASME Spring Conference is an annual one-day medical education conference aimed at Doctors and other allied healthcare juniors interested in medical education. This year’s theme is “Building Diversity in Medical Education".
The day will feature prominent keynote speakers and interactive workshops focusing on topics such as disability, gender and race within medical education, amongst others. The conference is targeted at trainees across all aspects of healthcare (not just for doctors!), with all levels of experience in medical education, aiming to help develop your career and interests.
Importantly, there will also be ample opportunity to share your medical education work on a national level by submitting abstracts for both oral and poster presentations, and the conference will also provide networking opportunities, enabling you to meet like-minded individuals and share ideas with those in similar positions.
Following the success of last year - we are offering an opportunity to submit a workshop proposal to run a 60-minute workshop at the conference, in addition to abstract submissions for poster and oral presentations.
The TASME Spring Conference has been approved for CPD points.
